  • Key to start the discovery of Ars on Toronto. 6 euros, we begin by reading some allowing to set the story of the cure of Ars through old documents presented in showcases. Then go into a series of scenes representative Jean-Marie Vianney since his childhood until his death. The scenes present the highlights of his life and explain the reasons for his journey to become, was not to my surprise, the patron of the priests of the world! As to the visit, the characters made by Grévin become us "familiar" and we leave bathed in that time and as if we we same haunting the priest. This visit makes speaking the other places to visit within Ars as the House where he lived and the Basilica he built and where bodies are based.

  • The Historial Museum illustrates perfectly 17 major scenes from the life of the Holy priest of Ars. Characters of Grévin wax, great scenery and soundtracks. To do to complete the tour of the Basilica and the old rectory.

  • We visited my husband and I the Historial of the Holy Curé of Ars on 20 August. We were very well greeted by the owner who took his time to evoke us a few anecdotes and explain mainly the history of its Museum, from its creation to its evolution up to now. Created by Grévin wax characters we were blown away and they seemed real. 17 scenes presented themselves to us. It was sufficient for it to follow the meaning of the visit. A few words at the beginning to share our mutual curiosity (my husband and me), then from the 2nd or 3rd stage, silence took place on our way so the Mystic took precedence over the mere superficial curiosity. It is not worth to be devout Christians to visit this museum. The man that was Jean-Marie Vianney, known as the title of the Holy curé of Ars, his life hard, humble and always turned to others, the poor, the "in need": all this was really well explained and we felt inevitably absorbed by its history. A beautiful site which deserves that we make a detour, certainly!
